NGI Scholarship Info

In 2006, PCI embarked on a youth scholarship program devised by the New Generation Initiative committee. In each year since, our four Program Providers have made use of the PCI fee waivers by matching them with their own to create full scholarships. To date, more than 150 scholarships have been awarded.
NGI scholarships are administered by the Program Providers, assisted by Sponsors who help select candidates and facilitate the process. If you are interested in applying for an NGI scholarship or sponsoring a candidate for a particular camp session, please contact the Program Provider organizing that session.
